Since 1979, the Castle Building has been preserved by the Historical Society of Saginaw County and is home to the award-winning Castle Museum of Saginaw County History. Within its walls, you will discover a celebration of the diversity and richness of the community’s heritage through dynamic exhibits and programs.
The Way We Worked
Work and the workplace have gone through enormous changes between the mid-19th century, when 60 percent of Americans made their living as farmers, and the early 21st century. The Smithsonian traveling exhibition, “The Way We Worked,” celebrates the history of work in America.
The Alcoves are located on the first floor of the Museum just outside the Morley Room. The hallway is broken into four distinct display areas. While the space may be small, the subject matter is always engaging and educational.
PRETTY AS A POSTCARD
Long before email, picture postcards were an international fad. These photographic images offered a quick and inexpensive way to share thoughts and information with family and friends. The Castle Museum's latest exhibition, Pretty as a Postcard, shares early twentieth century scenes of Saginaw.
